A motorcyclist was killed and another one injured in a wreck Saturday night in Richland County.
The incident happened around 9:30 p.m. on Trotter Road near Garners Ferry Road, officials said.
Investigators said Mr. Harp was riding a motorcycle at a high rate of speed when he collided with another motorcyclist who was traveling with him.
Both motorcyclists lost control, Coroner Mr. Gary Watts said.
“The victim crossed into the path of a car traveling in the opposite direction on Trotter Road,” Mr. Watts said. “Mr. Harp died at the scene and the driver of the other motorcycle was transported to Palmetto Richland Memorial by EMS in serious condition.”
Mr. Harp did not have on a helmet and an autopsy conducted on Sunday showed he died from injuries sustained in the crash.
